The Miami Dolphins have announced that
fullback, tight end Charles Clay tore a ligament in his right knee this weekend
during the team’s victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars and will undergo
season-ending surgery in the coming days, reports Omar Kelly of the Florida
Miami Dolphins H-back Charles Clay tore a ligament in
his right knee and will undergo season-ending surgery in the coming days.
Clay will be placed on season-ending
injured reserve, which will free up a roster spot for the Dolphins. The
second-year product from Tulsa caught 18 passes for 212 yards and two
touchdowns this season.
Kelly notes that Clay will need at
least three months to fully recover from the surgery, which means he should be
healthy enough to participate in the Dolphins’ offseason program this spring.
In Clay’s absence, rookie tight end
Michael Egnew and undrafted rookie Kyle Miller will “have their roles elevated”
for the final two games of the season, according to Kelly.
